Trees for Transition - Working woodlands for a sustainable future

Trees for Resources

LimeTrees and woods will continue to provide a wide range of traditional resources, including timber, woodfuel and pulpwood. Woods also accomodate the widest range of wildlife of any UK eco-system. Trees have long been cultivated to provide fruits and nuts in orchards. These resources can occur of their own accord, especially some of the wildlife, but in the UK they mostly need active management of the woods to deliver them.

Trees are valuable in many different ways and some of these values have recently been described in the UK National Ecosystem Assessment. However, trees cannot and should not be valued only on the axis of money - we need multiple axes in our woodshed!
